In essence, this chip has the same muscle as the company's current mainstream desktop flagship, the i9-9900K, but demoted to the Core i7 brand extension. This could give it a sub-$400 price, letting it compete with the likes of AMD's Ryzen 7 3800X and possibly even triggering a price-cut on the 3900X.Also interesting is that the screenshot reveals ECS has a Z490H6-A2 motherboard. This means ECS is getting back into high-end motherboards, the company's current lineup stops at B360 and doesn't feature Z370 or Z390 models.
